The Union Internationale de Tir (UIT) was gradually expanding the Olympic Program. After only two events in 1932, and three in 1936, the 1948 program featured four events – two rifle and two pistol events. The 1948 Olympic shooting events were contested from 2-6 August at the well-known [Bisley Rifle Range], where many of the [1908 Olympic shooting events](/games/sportgames?year=1908&sportid=SHO) were held.
